Ethiopian Opal in Argentium Sterling Silver

Description

Opal - Ethiopia

A very nice little opal, with fantastic play of color, in a delicate teardrop setting. A great example of what is known as "Welo" opal, it displays fantastic brilliant and shifting fire of red, green and gold. It is one of my newer pieces, and includes a textured border on the sterling silver back. I have photographed it fairly dark, to better show the play of color in this opal. A beautiful piece, if I do say so myself. Opals are more delicate than most other stones, so be prepared to take greater care when wearing and storing this piece.

This pendant is just under 1 inch (24mm) tall, including the bail.

I did not cut this particular stone, but rather got it from a dealer. I did create every element of the silver work. I have used tarnish resistant Argentium Sterling Silver to make this pendant. (For more information about Argentium see: http://www.argentiumsilver.com ). As with most of the jewelry I make from sterling silver, the back, bail and details are created from Argentium sterling, but the bezel (which surrounds the sides of the stone) is usually fine(.999) silver.

The chain is not included. Please convo me for chain prices, if desired, or for possible shipping outside of the U.S.A.

All orders to the USA ship USPS Priority Mail with tracking available, and are insured for the full value. If you prefer a different method of shipping, send me a convo about it and I’ll make other arrangements. Because I travel frequently, please understand that I may not always have internet access and may not receive messages or orders immediately. I will respond to your inquiries at my earliest opportunity.

This is a wonderful pendant! The workmanship is outstanding. I have worn it everyday since receiving it. John at Sumtoo is so responsive to questions and requests. It actually looks even better than the photograph above.

I asked John to come up with a design of a silver pendant with 2 gold nuggets as a special gift to give my daughter for the birth of her two "little nuggets". He was so wonderful to work with and the quality of this piece could not have been better. I highly recommend the beautiful work of John Sumtoo!

Returns & exchanges

I take great care to produce high quality jewelry. The stones should not fall out, the bails should not break off, etc. If something like this happens due to faulty workmanship, please contact me and I will instruct you on returning the piece for free repair or replacement. That having been said, natural stones can be fragile and dropping your jewelry can cause the stone to break or fracture. This is not something I can control. In the unfortunate event that you have broken your jewelry, please contact me and I will see what I can do to repair or recreate it for you for an appropriate fee.

If you are simply unsatisfied with the actual piece for some reason, I want to hear about it. You can contact me and we can try to work something out. I might have you just return it to me in exchange for a shop credit for the price of the piece.

Shipping policies

All orders ship USPS Priority Mail with tracking, and are insured for the full value of the jewelry. If you prefer a different method of shipping, send me a convo about it and I’ll do my best.
